Eve sat in front of the television with Ron and Christine listening to a popular Monday morning news show from White Town, an interview that terrified them all. An interview with Jonathan Hart and Eve’s four boys.
“Ouch,” a thin trail of blood ran slowly down the left side of Eve’s neck.
Christine was mortified, “Eve, God, I’m sorry.” She’d nicked Eve’s skin with the scissors. Eve turned to see her new friend running to the sink to dampen a towel. She returned and grabbed Eve’s hand, placing the wet towel in her palm. “Put pressure here. I really am sorry.” She continued snipping at Eve’s hair, with the newly darkened locks falling to the floor in a choppy shower.
Ron rose from the table and walked to the TV to turn up the sound. “Ladies, please.” They all froze as the camera zoomed in with a close up of Eve’s youngest son, Trent.
The boy had tears in his eyes, “Mom, if you’re out there, please call me. I know this can’t be true, you would never do this to Dad.”
The camera panned into David Huntsly, the newsman. He was holding up the morning paper to show the headline to the viewers, EVE HART – TRAITOR – TURNS IN HUSBAND TO LATINO TOWN POLICE.
